  • We are currently a two peice looking for 1 or 2 people to complete the band. We have stage gear and a jam spot with multitracking capabilities. I am a bass/gtr/vocalist and my counter part a drummer. We've been playing together for more than 12 yrs and have played the bar scene as well as recorded all over. We just got out of the studio with a 3 song ep mastered and ready to go. We'd like someone to learn a few of our songs so we can get out there and push the product. Eventually we'd like to write with our new member (s) but until then learn a few and play a few. We will be shopping the ep around to see what kind of interest we can gather but the way we see it, the live show kinda proves your worth so we'd like to get practiced asap. We are late 30's but don't really care what age you are as long as you can do the music justice. We haven't posted our latest recording yet as we're getting the cover together currently. We do have other recordings if you'd like to hear em at trenchfoot2000.bandcamp.com

  • Seeking female vocalist for a funky soul band Established band and with a full set of music inspired by the great soul / R&B / funk tunes of the ‘60s and ‘70s.

Always a lively crowd with an awesome light and sound show. Of course we’ve added more tunes to the repertoire and come celebrate the bassist’s birthday as a bonus. Hope to see you there.
    wheresmike@outlook.com

  • Opening act available for your next gig! The Where's Waldo Trio is an acoustic-ish duo that plays 70s-90s rock and pop, some new-ish country, and a few other surprises, and we want to support your next show! We have a broad 40+ song repertoire, so we adjust to your audience needs in 30-60 minutes sets (your call). Competitive prices, a VERY small footprint, and tons of fun means your fans get properly warmed up, and then we get the heck out of your way in mere minutes. Taffer Fact: Scientific studies prove that our tear-down time -- roughly 6-1/2 minutes -- is EXACTLY the time it takes for everyone in an average bar to order a fresh round of drinks, thus making it the optimum amount of time between Where's Waldo finishing up and you starting, so you can take the stage at exactly the right time and be the total rockstars we all know you are. So if you want to give your party the absolute best kickoff possible, the only question you have to ask is: Where's Waldo? Hit us up at

  • Hi - we're a basement jamming band (guitar, bass and keys) in our 40s and 50s that just lost our drummer and want to find a replacement so we can start performing live. We play covers - classic and some recent rock and dabble in some alt-country and soul. Looking for an drummer with some live experience who is solid and tasteful. We aim for melody and dynamics rather than noise and thunder. We're intermediate musicians so no need for professional credentials but we're not looking for a beginner. We aim for weekly Wednesday night jams. Background vox and a practice space in the east end would be welcome but aren't deal killers. Personality-wise we're not overly-intense but we aim to make progress as well as having fun. A beer or two is cool but we're not into more than that for jam sessions. If this sounds like you, please contact me at
